Tablet is 'iPhone on Steroids'?

MacRumorsがAppleが発表するという噂のTabletについて伝えていました。

Boy Genius Report reveals that it has received information from a source regarding Apple's much-rumored tablet, noting that it is basically an "iPhone on steroids" and offering a few details about the device.

  • The tablet's multi-touch gestures are "out of control."
  • It's powered by an incredibly fast ARM CPU
  • It runs on the iPhone kernel.
  • The internal model number is K48AP.
  • There hasn't been an updated iPhone OS build because there's too much tablet-related code/references in the OS and Apple obviously didn't want that to leak. Oops.
  • The tablet is basically an "iPhone on steroids."

The report is not the first to refer to Apple's tablet as carrying an internal model number of K48AP, as a Reddit user previously made the same claim, along with an assertion that the next-generation iPhone will carry internal model number N90AP. (The iPhone 3GS carries an internal model number of N88AP.) It is unknown whether the two sources are independent.

いくつかポイントがありますが、非常に協力なARMのCPU、iPhone kernel、iPhoneOS4.0にはTabletの情報がある、といったところか。
ただ個人的にはTableはあまり食指がわかない。どれだけ魅力的な製品がでてくるかは分からないけれども、それよりも次世代iPhoneのほうがずっと身近にあるので気になる。

各社がタブレットを発表しているのでAppleが出すのは間違いないと思うけど、他社の製品を一掃してしまうようなAppleらしい製品が出てくることに期待したい。
